Torn (A Wicked Saga #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout: Review Tour


Torn between duty and survival, nothing can be the same.

Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the Prince of the Fae, she’s left bruised and devastated—and with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they’ll kill her.

Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all else—he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is, if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself if she lies to him?

But as the Fae Prince begins to close in on Ivy, intent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is running out of options. If she doesn’t figure out who she can trust—and fast—it’s not only her heart that will be torn apart, but civilization itself.

Review by Yvette:

***While this review doesn’t contain spoilers for Torn, I do NOT recommend reading if you haven’t read Wicked. This is such a hard review to write because, as much as I want to gush and exclaim over the various happenings in the book, I don't want to give anything important away, so apologies in advance for the vagueness. ***

When I started Torn, I was fresh off a re-read of Wicked, still reeling (for the second time) from the knowledge bomb dropped at the book's end. Questions swirled through my mind: Did that just happen? OMG, that just happened! What does this mean for Ivy? I mean, I know what it means, but what does it mean??? Luckily, this time around, I got to delve right into the next chapter in Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Wicked trilogy, and boy is it a page turner! In a word, this book is intense. The tone of Torn is undoubtedly darker than that of Wicked, with higher stakes and even more twists and turns in store for our heroine, Ivy Morgan, and company.

Torn picks up right where Wicked left off, dropping readers smack in the middle of Ivy's newfound discovery that she is, in fact, the halfling that Ren has been searching for. As if that mind-blowing bit of information weren’t enough of a shock, the Order now has to deal with the fact that the prince and his knights have come through the gate. Ivy is understandably scared of what the future holds but she's not the type of girl to wallow in self-pity. She's tough. She’s pragmatic. She's a survivor. It’s this strength of character from which Ivy has to draw when she’s tested emotionally, physically, and psychologically over the course of the narrative.

Before starting Torn, I had no author of which direction the author would steer the narrative and, even while reading, I couldn't begin to predict the next move. That's exactly what I love about the story, though. Jennifer L. Arementrout's take on Fae mythology is so unique and inventive that the narrative constantly bombards you with new (and familiar) otherworldly creatures, new revelations from unexpected sources, and non-stop, no-holds-barred action. Torn is the type of book that will keep you on your toes and leave you shouting at your kindle. Between Ivy, Ren, Tink, the Order, and the fae, there's so much that happens in this book, yet there's still so much more to come, and I can't wait to see how it all comes to a head with Brave.
